Macro Cliché

Posted on Tue 6th Dec, 2005, 8:01pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 30 secs, Aperture: f/32,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Minor,
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, Focal length: 100mm,
Captured: 6th December 2005, 6:30pm,

I realise this is the first thing everybody does when they start playing with macro but I figured that as long as I don't repeat myself within the blog then it's fair game.

If you hadn't already guessed, it's a droplet of water on the optical surface of a CD. This was the second attempt after I managed to smear my greasy fingers over the target area on the first attempt.

I haven't had to do very much to it really. I did do a bit of cloning work, partly due to a slightly dirty sensor and partly due to macro shots showing dust/dirt far more clearly than normal shots. I also had to do the sharpening selectively as the long exposure time introduced a bit of noise which started to get more obvious after unsharp mask was applied.

It's like that round from Ask The Family.

Maybe you could try it with a DVD? :-) Interesting reflections in the droplet - your monitor? Maybe you could play around with the reflections there if you can focus any closer?

Yeah that's my monitor in the reflection. Think it might be onestop-digital that's on the screen. That was the closest I could focus, however I could just use a bigger droplet. That one was really small.
